XPathNavigator.SetTypedValue Method

Sets the typed value of the current node.

Namespace:  System.Xml.XPath
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

public virtual void SetTypedValue(
	Object typedValue
)

Parameters

typedValue
Type: System.Object

The new typed value of the node.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

The XPathNavigator does not support the type of the object specified.

ArgumentNullException

The value specified cannot be null.

InvalidOperationException

The XPathNavigator is not positioned on an element or attribute node.

NotSupportedException

The XPathNavigator does not support editing.

When an XmlDocument object is created as the result of a schema validating XmlReader object, the value specified to the SetTypedValue method is verified against the XML Schema Definition Language (XSD) schema for the XML document. If the value specified is invalid according to the schema for the XML document, an XmlSchemaException is thrown.

The SetTypedValue method is valid only when the XPathNavigator is positioned on an element or attribute node.

In the following example, the SetTypedValue method is used to update all price elements in the contosoBooks.xml file using the XmlNamespaceManager object to resolve namespace prefixes in the XPath expression.

XmlReaderSettings settings = new XmlReaderSettings();
settings.Schemas.Add("http://www.contoso.com/books", "contosoBooks.xsd");
settings.ValidationType = ValidationType.Schema;

XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("contosoBooks.xml", settings);
XmlDocument document = new XmlDocument();
document.Load(reader);

XPathNavigator navigator = document.CreateNavigator();

navigator.MoveToChild("bookstore", "http://www.contoso.com/books");
navigator.MoveToChild("book", "http://www.contoso.com/books");
navigator.MoveToChild("price", "http://www.contoso.com/books");

Decimal price = 19.99M;
navigator.SetTypedValue(price);

navigator.MoveToParent();
Console.WriteLine(navigator.OuterXml);

The example takes the contosoBooks.xml file as an input.
